Our birthmom went into early labor yesterday. She is at 29 weeks 1 day and the boys are measuring at 2 lbs. 15 oz. She is at CMC hospital in Charlotte and the doctors were able to stop the contractions last night. They gave her one steroid shot last night and another one today at noon.
They are releasing her to go home on strict bed rest. She has family with her and they will do everything including take care of her other children.
Please pray!! Pray for the health of the birthmom and her peace. Pray that the boys will get at least one more week to grow over 3 lbs! Pray that the doctors will be vigilant and keep a watch for any signs of trouble! And please pray that this mommy, so far away from her babies will be at peace with all that the Lord has planned. I am trying to keep from panicking, to trust that God has them in His hands and will take tender care of them.
We are preparing to drive to Charlotte as soon as they are born, we were going to fly, but I don't think we will have time now to buy tickets at a reasonable amount. If the boys come this early, they will most likely end up in the Nicu for quite awhile, so we will probably have to go there, stay a week or two, come back home and then go again and wait for them to be released.
What a whirlwind! God give me strength!
